BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | West Aceh bans 'tight trousers'

Quote:
One local official said women found breaking the law will have to change into a government-issue skirt and their banned garments will be cut up.
Not my culture so I guess I will never "get it."

The guy taking the photo looks like a covered wagon with that getup he's wearing.

That could result in some very unpleasant consequences. I would also advise you to wear an appropriate cover for those antlers.

So, based on the OP I have the suspicion that the thong bikini is going to take many years before it's finally accepted.

Here's something for you to mourn, MontanaGuy. The Islamic bikini is tipped as the "burqini"

I'd happily undress these beauties and lead them out of slavery and bondage

I've got to tell you that the women on the first photo of the OP look like characters from Star Wars. I think that this is unnatural and is only a representation of the dominance of the male population who rule everything in many Islamic nations. I have no respect for men who treat women in this manner and I have no doubt that if the women were running those nations the world would be a better place.

Oh man those chicks are hot in those pajamas. Not sure why they are wearing them to the beach though.

Seriously. How in hell can even the people who believe in that crap not see it as completely anti-progress and just plain ridiculous?! It's like they have no desire to live out of the 7th century. And to think that gov'ts impose this kinda crap as law is mind boggling.

We need to respect various customs as we Americans haven't a clue how to deal with cultures unless we travel /study and begin to grasp traditional garb and religous restrictions. I believe that
the Islam has gone too far and exrtreme in insisting clothing be so restrictive whereas I also believe
the West has allowed cothing that is inappropriate (too much body exposure). I believe Islamic men
contol women as if they are slaves for their own gain. Many of the millions of Islamic women a twice
as intelligent as some of these jackasses. This pagan based religion (well intended,traditional,his-
toric and beloved) is an easy target for all kinds of foolishness. When your raised in just about any-
thing you adopt those teaching thats why all religions have the smell of manmade doctrines and beliefs that are not pleasing to God and His only mediator Jesus Christ .
